Dumbarton Striker Isaac Layne says he is in good hands at the club after he scored two goals in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Stranraer.

The 24-year-old English striker, who joined earlier in the summer, has made his first two starts in over a year in recent weeks after an ACL injury had him on the sidelines.

Layne scored the winner at Peterhead last weekend and put in a MOTM performance on Saturday, scoring two and teeing up Reghan Tumilty for the other.

He said: “The boys were first class again.

“I’ve not had to work too hard for the goals. It was a better finish from Reghan than mine – I did what I could but he’s taken it very well.

“Being out injured is bad, but an ACL is even worse. It’s a horrible injury.

“I’ve got a big family down south and they helped me get through it and the gaffer has given me time.

“The gaffer and Kirsten, the physio, have been really good with me with my rehab.

“I’m in good hands here at Dumbarton.”

Layne has celebrated his goals in recent weeks by folding his arms and posing - a celebration in tribute to his favourite player, PSG forward Kylian Mbappe. And, after missing so much time out through injury, the former Southend striker says that it feels great to be scoring again.

He added: “After you’ve been out for a year it feels so much better when you score . I’m going to keep improving and getting my fitness up and, hopefully, we can have a good season.”
